Anyways, back to Zakopane. We spent two days enjoying the fresh mountain air. On the first day we took the funicular up some semi-mountains to have a beer outside in the sunshine (with mittens on) and enjoy the view of the real snow-capped mountains. We also took some time just strolling around the cute main street and browsing countless outdoor stores and touristy souvenir stands. To be honest, it was pretty tacky! Lots of junk and not really anything good for a real souvenir anywhere we visited in Poland
On the second day we went for a moderately strenuous hike up on of the real mountains. Not an overly snow-capped one, as it would be a bit dangerous (slippery), and the weather wasn’t the greatest. It was a nice hike though, with lots of bright coloured leaves on the ground and the trail was nicely groomed with rock steps all the way up. It was tiring though, and we were happy to get back down to the hostel and make some food – pancakes for me, perogies for Nick.
Zakopane was our last stop in Poland, and it was really nice to see some mountains and nature again!
